Don't be put off by the long lines. Punch will have your pizza to you in no time! I've heard some people don't like the "burnt" spots on the crust edge, but that's a characteristic of wood-fire oven baking. My youngest son loves Punch so much that he'll go out of his way on long drives just to pick up... More

Love this pizza! The wood fired crust is so good. We ordered 4 different pizzas and they were all unique and so yummy! Each pizza is made by hand and the salads are really fresh.

My #1 favorite pizza place any where. Best toppings and crust. Nice friendly people and atmosphere but I come here for the pie!!! The chopped salad is good too but try one of the names pies. All are good. There is only 1 size. Large for some but few would consider it small. 2 might be able to share 1... More

I ate at Punch Pizza today with my business team. The food was excellent and prepared quickly. I had the Napoli Pizza with Pepperoni and Sausage and it reminded me of pizza that I ate in Italy. I would highly recommend Punch Pizza

Here with a whole family. Ordered four pizzas and multiple salads. The pizzas were fresh and tasty as always. The Punch salad was far too vinigary, though. A hopping and fun environment.

The pizza here is simple: it's made right in front of you if you wait for it. Pizza takes 10 min or less due to the 800 degree ovens. Tasty and fresh, though I agree a little undercooked in the center. Nice outdoor seating. Great value.

I've eaten here countless times. My kids love it. The Toto pizza is fantastic. Great salads, too. Friendly people work here and they are paid fairly (at least $11/hour in 2015).

Excellent pizza and super fast too. A few vegetarian options and extremely delightful. We had a salad that turned up with some pork meat variant. They quickly replaced it with another without fuss. We were a large party and had a sumptuous dinner in under an hour.

I'll admit, when my friend suggested this place, I wasn't too excited for pizza, she explained that the pizza is supposed to be fantastic. I still wasn't thrilled to be going to a pizza place. Wow, this place ended up being amazing!! This is the best pizza I've had I think ever, it's so light and airy and just great!... More
